Festive Greetings with our new song
We Shall Overcome
2020 has been an extraordinary year. DIY members have not been able to perform or work in our normal ways but we have continued to be creative and to connect with others and to share our work widely.
To round off 2020 DIY actors have created our own version of the protest song and anthem ‘We Shall Overcome’. Working with musician Sarah After and film-maker Hilary Easter-Jones we recorded our festive song and filmed over Zoom and using our own phones.
We hope you enjoy our festive song!
